Many believers feel stunted in their Christian growth. We beat ourselves up over our failures and, in the process, pull away from God because we subconsciously believe He tallies our defects and hangs His head in disappointment. In this newly repackaged editionnow with full appendix, and the authors own epilogue, "The Scandal of Grace: Fifteen Years Later," Brennan Manning reminds us that nothing could be further from the truth. The Father beckons us to Himself with a "furious love" that burns brightly and constantly. Only when we truly embrace Gods grace can we bask in the joy of a gospel that enfolds the most needy of His flockthe "ragamuffins."
Are you bedraggled, beat-up, burnt-out?
Most of us believe in Gods gracein theory. But somehow we cant seem to apply it in our daily lives. We continue to see Him as a small-minded bookkeeper, tallying our failures and successes on a score sheet.
Yet God gives us His grace, willingly, no matter what weve done. We come to Him as ragamuffinsdirty, bedraggled, and beat-up. And when we sit at His feet, He smiles upon us, the chosen objects of His "furious love."
Brennan Mannings now-classic meditation on grace and what it takes to access itsimple honestyhas changed thousands of lives. Now with a Ragamuffins thirty-day spiritual journey guide, it will change yours, too.
Includes a 19-Day Spiritual Journey Guide!
"Brennan Manning does a masterful job of blowing the dust off of shop-worn theology and allowing Gods grace to do what only Gods grace can doamaze."
-Max Lucado, Bestselling author of The Gift for All People
"I found deep comfort in realizing that Jesus loves even me, a ragamuffin, just as I am."
-Michael Card, Musician, recording artist, and author of A Violent Grace
"This is a zestful and accurate portrayal that tells us unmistakably that the gospel is good, dazzlingly good."
-Eugene Peterson, Author of The Message
Story Behind the Book
The world assigns value to people using measurable standards. Someone is a successful student if she receives As. Someone is a strong athlete if he runs five miles a day. The Lord, however, knows nothing of standards. The Ragamuffin Gospel was inspired by Brennan Manning after he discovered firsthand what it means to live by grace instead of performance. His words bring new life and sweet refreshment to Christians who are tired of never measuring up.
Smoothie71AlabamaAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great bookNovember 25, 2015Smoothie71AlabamaAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I've heard of Brennan Manning before. I've read some quotes, inspiring posts about him, and of course I have heard of his all famous book, The Ragamuffin Gospel.
When I first got it I thought it looked interesting. It's the special anniversary edition so it includes a few different things than the original book, but the book in it's entirety is untouched. They allowed a few people to write some special words at the beginning, but they decided to leave the rest of the book alone, to let it speak for itself. I find that respectful and beautiful.
With that said, on to my review. Brennan has a wonderful piece here. This is a beautiful book from what I've read in it. Brennan tells the story of the Creator of the Universe and His endless pursuit of sinners in need of grace. He does a wonderful job of showing how God saves us by grace through faith and though we may wander and fall away, He loves us regardless and offers us grace to continue on this journey to love God and become more like Christ.
This book is one I would use for a small group or Bible study and I would recommend taking a week at a time. It's easy to rush through something and miss the beauty, but with this book I say take it slow. Enjoy it. Savor it. You don't want to miss what God will show you while reading. Let Him speak through the words of a former Franciscan Priest.
Note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review. All views expressed are mine.
LorettaDallas, GeorgiaAge: 45-54Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan ManningNovember 20, 2015LorettaDallas, GeorgiaAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3I had read this book back in the early 1990's when it first was published. I sped read it though back then, but this book is to be slowly chewed and digested so it can get into a person's spirit. It has the ability to change twisted thinking about God and addresses why He did what He did to save mankind. I was in a legalistic church for many years that preached and taught "holy" living. I always believed I never could measure up to God to be able to please Him with who I am or what I do or don't do, because I was always "screwing up". Always having a sense God was watching and waiting for me to mess up and not live the Christian life like I should. This book written by a man who was tormented by these feelings for years, knows what he is talking about. It is refreshing, a book to definitely keep in one's library to reference just in case these thoughts and feelings try to worm their way back in. I would definitely recommend this book for those who struggle to embrace God's love, mercy and grace for them.
